What push ups count toward challenge?

Question • 3 answers

What push ups count for this? Are they simply standard ones? How about decline or incline? I assume knee ones don't, but eh, those too? I forgot to log this months and want to make sure of it before posting. Thanks in advance:)

Was going to splurge on a tri wet suit today. In this particular shop I was on my way into the fitting room to try one on when a man stopped me. He said that I'd have to buy it first before I try it. If it didn't fit he'd get me another size. Now I wasn't g...

Thanks for the info, Colleen.  I was aware there had been a clean up a while back, but didn't know specifically what challenges had been removed.  Odd to remove some and then allow similar ones to be re-introduced.

Just drink water, unless you train with the same electrolyte drink provided in the races. Best type for me in the past has been HEED, But steer clear of those big commercial overhyped supermarket drinks.
